    Mitt Romney's campaign may be suffering in more than just the battleground states.

    Fox Business' Charlie Gasparino reports that some wealthy donors who have made financial commitments to the Romney campaign are reneging, and instead, opting to send their money to Republican House and Senate candidates who they see as having a better chance of winning next month.

    Citing two sources, including "a major player in Romney’s New York fundraising circles," Gasparino notes that some donors are losing faith that the Republican nominee can beat Obama.

    They've already wasted so much money funding the Romney/Ryan fiasco.
    Who can blame them for not wanting the throw good money after bad?

    Real Clear Politics poll tracking has Obama with 269 electoral votes, Romney still with 191 electoral votes and 78 still a toss up.

    FiveThirtyEight gives Obama an 85.7% chance of winning the election.
